NME readers react to Glastonbury Festival 2016 line-up announcement

2016 line-up described as both 'one of the best line-ups in a while' and 'shocking'

NME readers have reacted to the Glastonbury Festival 2016 line-up announcement.

The festival runs this year at its traditional home of Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from 22-26 June. Its headliners Adele, Coldplay and Muse had already been announced.

Newly confirmed are Beck, Foals, LCD Soundsystem, Chvrches, James Blake, PJ Harvey, ZZ Top, New Order, Disclosure, Stormzy and Bring Me The Horizon. They will be joined by Skepta, Ellie Goulding, The 1975, The Last Shadow Puppets, Grimes, Jake Bugg, Fatboy Slim, Guy Garvey, Madness, Wolf Alice, Bat For Lashes and more.

Reaction to the line-up has so far been mixed, with one fan describing the bill as “one of the best line-ups they’ve had in a while” and another calling it “beyond shocking, really bad”.

One NME reader wrote: “A few surprises I didn’t see coming like Beck and Madness. Can’t wait!”

However, another said: “Barring Foals and Muse, that line up doesn’t excite me very much”.
